Life in Bryan Fischer’s America would be one in which all of our laws and public policies would be written and enforced in strict adherence to Biblical mandate, even going so far as to put whales to death and shooting bears on sight.
So it is a little ironic to see Fischer ranting on his radio program last week that Obama Administration’s contraception mandate means that “Imam Obama” has issued a “fatwa” installing “secular Sharia”:
Essentially what President Obama has done is he’s issued a fatwa on behalf of secular Sharia, this religion of secular fundamentalism. There are fundamentalists who are followers of secular fundamentalism; it’s every bit as much a religious view as Christianity is.
And so President Obama has issued this fatwa, as Imam Obama, the head of secular Sharia, that Christians have the same choice as Christians have when Muslim armies come to town … Muslims armies come into a land and they give Christians three choices: you convert, you submit, or you die; those are your choices.
Now President Obama has issued a secular version of the same thing because those are the choices now that Christians face.
